The only small 38 I have experience with is my 642. For me it's perfect. One speed strip and the gun in my pocket in a Tuff holster is really quite comfortable. I still carry my G27 sometimes instead, though.

Hmmm. Thought I responded to this thread, but the post never appeared. Strange. Anyway...

I believe the now-discontinued S&W model 337PD is the lightest +P-rated revolver ever made in .38 Special, edging the other competitors out by weighing-in at 10.7 ounces. I owned one of these for several years, and while it worked like a dream for drop-in-the-pocket carry duties, it was NOT very pleasant to shoot, even using low-powered target ammo.

You can see the "+P Jacketed" warning on the barrel; apparently, lead bullets wouldn't stay put in the cases during recoil, so using jacketed bullets was required to prevent bullets from creeping forward and jamming the cylinder. I never had any problems with mine, but I usually default to jacketed bullets for defensive use anyway.

642 is as light as id go. the balance of weight, shootablity, price and rust resistance is all there.

I would rather shoot my LCR with 357 than my 442 with 38 or 38+P. Update Two years later. Now that Arthritis is bugging me I am shooting a lot more 38s than 357s.

My LCR 38 +p came in with a loaded weight of 15.9 oz with Winchester PDX1 +p. It's fun to shoot and controls well.

That is the ugliest revolver I have ever seen.

+1 one on the LCR.. I have been pocket carrying a KLCR everyday for over a year now with a lasermax laser. It is one of the few guns that I honestly enjoy carrying.
